Hi all,

I have a bit of wordpress generated code that I would like to change on-the-fly.

The HTML code looks like this:

<div class="javo-item-price-table">
				<ul class="javo-price-item" style="height: 389px;">
				<li class="title">
					<h2>LIST YOUR BUSINESS - YEARLY SUBSCRIPTION</h2>
				</li>
				<li class="price">
					<span style="height: 123px;">
						The price for membership is <strong>£60.00 per Year</strong>. <br>Membership expires after 1 Year.					</span>
				</li>
				<li class="attribute"><span><i class="glyphicon glyphicon-pencil"></i> Item 1 posts</span></li><li class="attribute"><span><i class="glyphicon glyphicon-calendar"></i> Duration 365 days</span></li><li class="attribute disabled"><span><i class="glyphicon glyphicon-thumbs-up"></i> No Featured</span></li>				<li class="submit">
											<a class="pmpro_btn pmpro_btn-select" href="http://www.old-find.com/membership-account/membership-checkout/?level=1">More info</a>
									</li>
			</ul>
						<ul class="javo-price-item" style="height: 389px;">
				<li class="title">
					<h2>LIST YOUR EVENT - YEARLY SUBSCRIPTION</h2>
				</li>
				<li class="price">
					<span style="height: 123px;">
						The price for membership is <strong>£70.00 per Year</strong>. <br>Membership expires after 1 Year.					</span>
				</li>
				<li class="attribute"><span><i class="glyphicon glyphicon-pencil"></i> Item 1 posts</span></li><li class="attribute"><span><i class="glyphicon glyphicon-calendar"></i> Duration 365 days</span></li><li class="attribute disabled"><span><i class="glyphicon glyphicon-thumbs-up"></i> No Featured</span></li>				<li class="submit">
											<a class="pmpro_btn pmpro_btn-select" href="http://www.old-find.com/membership-account/membership-checkout/?level=2">More info</a>
									</li>
			</ul>
						<ul class="javo-price-item" style="height: 412px;">
				<li class="title">
					<h2>LIST YOUR BUSINESS - MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION</h2>
				</li>
				<li class="price">
					<span style="height: 146px;">
						<strong>£6.00</strong> now and then <strong>£6.00 per Month for 11 more Months</strong>. <br>Membership expires after 12 Months.					</span>
				</li>
				<li class="attribute"><span><i class="glyphicon glyphicon-pencil"></i> Item 1 posts</span></li><li class="attribute"><span><i class="glyphicon glyphicon-calendar"></i> Duration 360 days</span></li><li class="attribute disabled"><span><i class="glyphicon glyphicon-thumbs-up"></i> No Featured</span></li>				<li class="submit">
											<a class="pmpro_btn pmpro_btn-select" href="http://www.old-find.com/membership-account/membership-checkout/?level=5">More info</a>
									</li>
			</ul>
						<ul class="javo-price-item" style="height: 412px;">
				<li class="title">
					<h2>LIST YOUR EVENT - MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION</h2>
				</li>
				<li class="price">
					<span style="height: 146px;">
						<strong>£7.00</strong> now and then <strong>£7.00 per Month for 11 more Months</strong>. <br>Membership expires after 12 Months.					</span>
				</li>
				<li class="attribute"><span><i class="glyphicon glyphicon-pencil"></i> Item 1 posts</span></li><li class="attribute"><span><i class="glyphicon glyphicon-calendar"></i> Duration 360 days</span></li><li class="attribute disabled"><span><i class="glyphicon glyphicon-thumbs-up"></i> No Featured</span></li>				<li class="submit">
											<a class="pmpro_btn pmpro_btn-select" href="http://www.old-find.com/membership-account/membership-checkout/?level=6">More info</a>
									</li>
			</ul>
			</div>

There are two cases where I have strings that look similar:

<strong>£6.00</strong> now and then <strong>£6.00 per Month for 11 more Months</strong>. <br>Membership expires after 12 Months.

Open in new window

and
<strong>£7.00</strong> now and then <strong>£7.00 per Month for 11 more Months</strong>. <br>Membership expires after 12 Months.

Open in new window


I would like them to become:
<strong>£6.00 per month for 12 months</strong>. <br>Membership expires after 12 Months.

Open in new window

and
<strong>£7.00 per month for 12 months</strong>. <br>Membership expires after 12 Months.

Could I do this using a jQuery each function? (I've used the each function as in the future there might be more similar content generated by wordpress backend and I need this code to work even then on this pattern of content).

*************************************

MY PROGRESS SO FAR:
    var monthlySubText = [];
    jQuery("li.price span:contains(' now and then ')").each(function(index) { 
        monthlySubText.push(jQuery(this).closest("span").html());  //alert(monthlySubText[index]);
    });

Open in new window


I've stored the values of the two instances in an array but now I would like to modify the contents of that array and make changes to the html. Any other, better solution is welcome too.

Please assist. Thanks in advance.

first it should be like this:

var monthlySubText = [];

$("ul .price span:contains(' now and then ')").each(function (index) {
    monthlySubText.push($(this).closest("span").html());
});

alert(monthlySubText);

try this:

$("ul .price span:contains(' now and then ')").each(function (index) {
    var price = $("strong",$(this)).first().html();
    $(this).html("<strong>" + price + " per month for 12 months</strong>. <br>Membership expires after 12 Months.");
});

Open in new window

Test page : http://jsfiddle.net/53a7gurc/

jQuery(function($) {
    $(".javo-price-item li.price span>strong")
    .filter(function() {
        return /^£\d[^.]*\.\d\d$/.test($(this).text());
    })
    .each(function(i, v) {
        var txt = $(this).text();
        $(this).parent().html("<strong>" + txt + " per month for 12 months</strong>. <br>Membership expires after 12 Months.");
    });
});

Thanks for the replies. Just an additional question guys.

This works BUT I would like the last part
. <br>Membership expires after 12 Months.
to be passed through a variable too and not typed out as a text string as now.

How could I modify my working jQuery solution to allow this? I need everything withing the span that is after the second </strong> to be saved into a variable and inserted at the end in the last line of the jQuery code. Something like:
$(this).parent().html("<strong>" + txt + " per month for 12 months</strong>" + endTxt);

Open in new window



thanks in advance
